Mayor's Office, > 
Chicago, Oct. 7th, 1895. $ 

To the Honorable, the City Council* of 
the City of Chicago: 

Gentlemen — A short time ago I ad- 
dressed a communication to the Board 
of Trustees of the Sanitary District of 
Chicago, making inquiry, among other 
things, as to the date of the probable 
completion of the Main Drainage Chan- 
nel, and as to the construction of ad- 
juncts and intercepting sewers by the 
Drainage District. In reply the Trustees-

have informed me that the completion 
of the Main Drainage Channel may 
reasonably be expected by the autumn 
of 1897. They do not indicate what 
auxiliary channels they propose to con- 
struct, or when their construction will 
be undertaken. They further inform 
me that they are advised by their coun- 
sel that the Sanitary District has legally 
no jurisdiction in the matter of con- 
structing for the city intercepting sewers, 
or of reversing the grades of existing 
lake emptying sewers. 

I herewith submit an opinion from the 
Corporation Counsel in which he advises 
me of his concurrence in the opinion of 
the counsel of the Drainage Trustees, and 
expresses the view that the duties of the 
Drainage Trustees do not extend beyond 
the construction of a Main Drainage 
Channel and auxiliary channels to carry 
off the sewage and drainage when 
emptied into them. 

If the city must provide intercepting 
sewers or reverse the grade of numerous 
existing sewers, in order to avail itself of 
the advantages of the Drainage Channel, 
it is apparent that the work will require 
a large amount of time, money and skill. 
I call the matter thus early to your atten- 
tion in order that there may be ample 
opportunity to consider and devise a 
comprehensive plan for diverting into 
the Drainage Channel the large propor- 
tion of city sewage now emptying into 
the lake. Before any definite plan can be 
decided upon, it will be necessary to con- 
fer with the Sanitary Trustees, to ascer- 
tain what auxiliary channels they intend 
to construct. It has been understood 
that they contemplate two, one for the 
cleansing of the North Branch of the 
Chicago River, and another for the 
cleansing of the south fork of the South 
Branch. When the auxiliary channels 
have been fully determined upon by the 
Drainage Trustees, we can then tell for 
the first time where the outfalls of many 
sewers should be located, and to what 
extent the construction of intercepting 
sewers will be necessary. In this con- 
nection, it will be important to consider 



whether the - cost of such intercepting 
sewers can be defrayed by special assess- 
ment upon property deemed specially 
benefitted, or whether some other pro- 
vision will be necessary, or whether 
some further legislation will not have to 
. be secured. 

I suggest that this whole matter be re- 
ferred to some appropriate committee of 
your Henorable Body, or to a special 
committee, if you prefer that course, to 
be considered and reported upon by such 
committee as soon as may be practicable. 
Yours truly, 

Geo. B. Swift, 
Mayor. 

Law Department, ) 
Office of Counsel to the Corporation, V 
Chicago, Oct. 4th, 1895. ) 

Hon. Geo. B. Swift, Mayor: 

Dear Sir — In conformity with your 
request I have examined the Sanitary 
Drainage Act for the purpose of ascer- 
taining whether it seems to require the 
construction of intercepting sewers and 
the changing of grades of existing sew- 
ers by the Trustees of the Drainage Dis- 
trict. I have also read the opinion given 
to the Drainage Trustees by John P. 
Wilson, Esq. 

There seems to me no reasonable doubt 
that the opinion of Mr. Wilson is correct 
and that under the law the Drainage 
Trustees have nothing to do with the 
sewerage system of the City of Chicago, 
although I am not sure that I entirely 
concur in the reasoning by which Mr. 
Wilson reaches his conclusion. The con- 
struction of intercepting sewers and the 
changing of grades in existing sewers 
are, in my judgment, matters under the 
exclusive control of the City of Chicago, 
and for which the city must ultimately 
make proper provision. The functions 
of the Drainage Board seem to be com- 
pleted upon their providing suitable 
main and auxiliary channels to receive 
the drainage and sewage of the city. 
Very respectfully yours, 
Wm. G. Be ale, 
Corporation Counsel.

The motion prevailed. 



The following veto message: 

Mayor's Office, ) 
Chicago, October 7th, 1895. ) 

To the Honorable, the City Council : 

Gentlemen— I return herewith without 
my approval an order passed by your 
Honorable Body September 30th, to stay 
the laying of a cement sidewalk on Jack- 
son street, from North Clark street to C, 
M. & St. P. Ry., for the reason that the 
contract for this work was let July 29th, 
1895, and work thereon completed. 

Yours truly, 

Geo. B. Swift, 
Mayor.

Office of City Comptroller. 

Chicago, Ociober 7th, 1895. 

To the Honorable, the Mayor and Alder- 
men, in City Council Assembled: 

Gentlemen— I beg leave to inform you 
that there will mature on December 1st, 
1895, $500,000 water certificates, issued 
January 5th, 1895. The revenue from the 
water fund will be sufficient to retire these 
certificates, and run current expenses of 
the Department, but will not be adequate 
to build tunnels which have been already 
contracted for. It will therefore be neces- 
sary for your Honorable Body to take some 
action to provide for the future needs for 
the payment of the work already in con- 
templation. 

Respectfully submitted, 

O. D. Wetherell, 
City Comptroller. 

Which was 

Referred to the Committee on Finance. 

The Clerk presented additional petitions 
of property owners, granting permission 
to the Union Elevated Railroad Company 
for an elevated railroad structure on Wa-

company.

HEALTH AND COUNTY RELATIONS. 

The Committee on Health and County 
Relations, to whom was referred a request 
of the Engle Sanitary and Cremation Com- 
pany of Des Moines, la., to erect a cre- 
matory, submitted a report recommending 
that the request be concurred in. 

Aid. Finkler moved that the report be 
deferred and published. 

The motion prevailed. 
The following is the report: 

Chicago, Oct. 14th, 1895. 
To the Mayor and .Aldermen of the City 
of Chicago in Council Assembled: 

Tour Committee on Health and County 
Relations, to whom was. referred request of 
the Engle Sanitary and Cremation Com- 
pany of Des Moines, la., (per Charles T. 
Palmer), to erect a crematory, having had 
the same under advisement, beg leave to 
report, and recommend that the request be 
concurred in. 

William Finkler, 

Chairman. 

Hon. Geo. B. Swift, Mayor; Hon. Wm. 
R. Kerr, Commissioner of Health; 
Hon. Martin B. Madden, Chairman of 
Finance Committee, and Common 
Council of the City of Chicago : 

Gentlemen— In pursuance of a request 
and suggestion on the part of Commis- 
sioner of Health W. R. Kerr, I write to 
request that a site be assigned to the 
Engle Sanitary and Cremation Company, 
of Des Moines, Iowa, for the purpose of 
erecting thereon one garbage cremator 
of the design and pattern used and em- 
ployed by said company under its pat- 
ents; the same to have one hundred tons 
capacity for the cremation of garbage for 
each twenty-four hours of actual opera- 
tion. 

In making this request, I have in mind 
the statements made by the Hon. Com- 
missioner of Health, W. R. Kerr, to 
myself, Mr. W. C. Smith and Mr. Robt. 
Robinson, of Des Moines, Iowa, on Mon- 
day, the 9th day of September, A. D. 
1895, which statements were in substance 
as follows: 

That the city would invite all persons 
and companies desiring to erect garbage 
cremators, to come to the City of Chi- 
cago and, at their own expense, con- 



struct their cremators, and exhibit them 
in operation, but that the city would as- 
sume on its part no responsibility to pur- 
chase any of said cremators, no matter 
how successfully the same might do their 
work, nor how fully or completely the 
claims and representations of such per- 
sons and companies were carried out and 
fulfilled ; that the only thing that the city 
would look to in the selection of the cre- 
mators would be the one which burned 
garbage cheapest. 

While the company which I represent 
desires to be considered in the field of 
competition, we also desire to say that 
we do not wish to accept the terms and 
conditions thus imposed by the Honor- 
able Commissioner of Health. 

The Engle Garbage Cremator has been 
in successful operation in upwards of 
twenty-three cities of the Union for a 
number of years past. It is not an ex- 
periment; it has been thoroughly tested 
and tried, and when we come to the City 
of Chicago with a proposition to con- 
struct for it one or more cremators of a- 
given size and dimensions, and guarantee 
that the same will work with absolute* 
perfection, so far as its sanitary condi- 
tions are concerned, and guarantee that 
it will successfully cremate the full quan- 
tity of one hundred tons of garbage and 
other refuse within every twenty-four 
hours of actual operation; when we have 
come here guaranteeing that, and have 
expended the amount of money neces- 
sary to be expended to erect such a cre- 
mator, and demonstrated its capacity, 
then we expect that the City of Chicago 
will undertake and agree on its part to 
accept and pay for the same at the price 
agreed upon. 

Garbage cremation, in its present state 
of development, is not an experiment, 
save with those companies and firms 
which have new and untried devices for 
the cremation of garbage, or devices 
which have been tried and failed. With 
cremators patterned upon the models 
and plans of the Engle Company, the 
work is absolutely sure and unques- 
tioned, and, therefore, it will be readily 



October 14,]

[1895. 



seen that the proposition of the Honor- 
able Commissioner of Health, to require 
any reputable and responsible firm to 
come here, and, at its own risk, expend 
anywhere from fifteen to twenty-five 
thousand dollars in the erection of its fur- 
naces, on a bare contingency that the 
city will accept them or not, at its op- 
tion, is as absurd as it is unbusinesslike 
and unfair. 

The undersigned also has in mind the 
statement of the Honorable Commis- 
sioner, made at the said interview, to the 
effect that the Ryder Furnace, of Pitts- 
burgh, Pa., consumed garbage by the 
combustion generated from its own con- 
sumption, or in other words,, to use the 
Commissioner's own language, "that 
with one bucket of coal, the Ryder appa- 
ratus would consume one hundred tons 
of garbage easily." 

The writer also has in mnid the state- 
ment of the Honorable Commissioner, to 
the effect that this proposition did not 
admit of argument, because he, the 
said Commissioner, had "seen it with 
his own eyes;" that he, the said Com- 
missioner, had "investigated it and knew 
what he was talking about," and having 
these propositions of the said Commis- 
sioner in mind, the undersigned desires 
to say that the Engle Sanitary and Crema- 
tion Company does not make any such 
extravagant claims for its apparatus; nor 
would it wish to be understood as desir- 
ing to compete with forces which, if the 
Commissioner's observation is correct, 
must be deemed altogether supernatural 
and miraculous. 

The undersigned desires to be under- 
stood as quoting the Honorable Commis- 
sioner of Health with absolute correct- 
ness, and desires to say that he tran- 
scribes the same from a stenographic re- 
port of said conversation . 

The Engle Sanitary and Cremation 
Company has full details, plans and 
specifications for the construction of its 
furnace along the lines above suggested. 
It has a record of ten years' successful 
operation, including one year at Jackson 



Park under the World's Fair manage- 
ment, with the unqualified endorsement 
of that body of its method of opera- 
tion. 

It comes to the City of Chicago in 
perfect good faith. It invites an investi- 
gation on the part of the Mayor of 
the City of Chicago into the merits 
of its apparatus and financial re- 
sponsbility, and seeks only a fair 
opportunity to demonstrate its worth, 
but it claims the right, as a busi- 
ness institution, of putting the City of 
Chicago under a contract which shall 
not be unilateral, but which shall be 
binding alike upon the company and 
upon the city — upon the company to 
perform its obligations, and upon the 
city to pay for the apparatus when those 
obligations have been fully and thor- 
oughly and honestly performed. 

Under its peculiar method of construc- 
tion, it is possible with the Engle appa- 
ratus to so utilize the surplus heat from 
the cremators as to materially lessen the 
cost of operating the various pumping 
stations of the city, whether the same 
are used for water works, or other pur- 
poses, and it is claimed and believed that 
by constructing the furnaces at or near 
any of these pumping stations, that a 
very large per cent, if not the larger per 
cent, of the cost of fuel in their operation 
will be saved to the city, thus reducing 
the cost of garbage cremation to a mini- 
mum. 

In this connection, it is to be under- 
stood that the operation of the Engle 
furnace is absolutely sanitary in all its 
conditions, there being neither smoke, 
odor or germ life possible after the oper- 
ation of the furnace. The capacity of 
the furnace will be such that it will not 
be necessary to store or accumulate any 
garbage, but the same will be consumed 
night and day as fast as it is delivered to 
the works. Under favorable conditions, 
the Engle apparatus has burned garbage 
at not to exceed the cost of 39 cents per 
ton. 

These suggestions spring from an ex- 



October 14, ] 



1090 



[1895, 



perience of ten years' duration in the 
matter of garbage cremation. They are 
made in perfect good faith, and in the 
belief that it is the purpose of the head 
of this administration to serve the people 
of Chicago faithfully, and to give them 
the best possible results from the ex- 
penditure of their money, and to treat 
persons dealing with the city with an 
absolute impartiality, uncommitted to 
any single enterprise or corporation in 
advance of a hearing from all, or to any 
policy, resulting from inexperience, cal- 
culated to discourage fair competition. 

If the conditions, as outlined, can be 
entertained by the present city authori- 
ties, we repeat that we would earnestly 
request you to assign us a suitable site 
upon which to erect and test a furnace, 
and we should be pleased to confer with 
you or any committee which may be ap- 
pointed for the purpose of entering into 
a contract which will be sufficient and 
fair, and impartial alike to city and 
competitors. 

Before any contract can be finally en- 
tered into on the part of the city for the 
expenditure of money for such purpose, 
it is understood that a special appropria- 
tion by the City Council will be made to 
cover this expenditure, which appropria- 
tion would have to be in such form that 
it could not be diverted or otherwise 
used for other municipal purposes, but 
the preliminary steps to a contract might 
all be successfully arranged prior to the 
passage of such appropriation. 

Awaiting your reply, I am and remain 
Respectfully yours, 

Chas. T. Palmer. 

JOINT COMMITTEE ON WHARVES AND 
PUBLIC GROUNDS AND STREETS 
AND ALLEYS, S. D. 

The Joint Committee on Wharves and 
Public Grounds and Streets and Alleys, S. 
D., to whom was referred the ordinance 
concerning the Lake Front settlement and 
granting certain privileges to the Illinois 
Central Railroad Company, submitted a 
report recommending that the same be 
passed as amended. 

Aid. Campbell moved that the report be 
published and made a special order for the 



next regular meeting (Oct. 21, 1895), at 8 
o'clock P.M. 

The motion prevailed. 

The following is the report: 

Chicago, Oct. U, 1894. 

To the Mayor and Aldermen of the City 
of Chicago in Council Assembled : 

Your Joint Committee on Wharves and 
Public Grounds and Streets and Alleys, S. 
D., to whom was referred an ordinance 
providing for a settlement with the Illinois 
Central Railroad Company of the Lake 
Front question, having had the same un- 
der advisement, beg leave to report, and 
recommend that the same be passed as 
amended. 

J. L. Campbell, 
Chairman Wharves and Public Grounds. 

Jno. W. Hepburn, 
Chairman Streets and Alleys, South. 

Whereas, It was decided and ad. 
judged in and by the final decree of the 
Circuit Court of the United States for 
the Northern District of Illinois, en- 
tered September 24, 1888, in the original 
suit of The People of the State of Illi- 
nois, upon the relation of the Attorney 
General of said State, complainants, 
against the Illinois Central Railroad 
Company and the City of Chicago, de- 
fendants, and the cross suit of the City 
of Chicago, complainant, against the 
Illinois Central Railroad Company and 
The People of the State of Illinois, de- 
fendants—which decree was afterwards, 
in this respect, affirmed on appeal by 
the Supreme Court of the United States, 
—that (saving the rights of the Illinois 
Central Railroad Company defined in 
the said decree) the fee of all the public- 
grounds in the City of Chicago lying 
east of Michigan avenue and between 
the north line of Randolph street ex- 
tended to Lake Michigan and the north 
line of Block twenty- three, extended to 
the lake, in Fractional Section Fifteen 
Addition to Chicago, including the 
grounds upon which rest the tracks and 
breakwater constructed by the Illinois 
Central Railroad Company, is in the 
City of Chicago in trust for public use; 
and that the City of Chicago, as riparian 
owner of said grounds on the east or 
Lake Front of said city, between the

north line of Randolph street and the 
north line of said Block twenty- three, 
each of said lines being produced to 
Lake Michigan, and in virtue of au- 
thority to that end conferred by its 
charter, has, among other powers, the 
power to establish, construct, erect and 
keep in repair on said Lake Front east 
of said premises, in such manner as 
may be consistent with law, public 
landing places, wharves, docks and 
levees, subject, however, in the execu- 
tion of this power, to the authority of 
the State by legislation to prescribe the 
lines beyond which piers, docks, wharves 
and other structures other than those 
erected by the General Government, 
may not be extended into the waters 
of the harbor that are navigable in 
fact, and to such supervision and con- 
trol as the United States may rightfully 
exercise in and over said harbor; and 

Whereas, The public interests im- 
peratively require that the power thus 
vested in the City of Chicago should now 
be exercised, and permission has been 
obtained from the Secretary of War, 
according to the form of the statute of 
the United States in such case made 
and provided, to till in a portion of the 
outer harbor at Chicago, as far out as 
the harbor line established by the Secre- 
tary of War September 28, 1890, upon the 
following conditions: 

1. That there shall be constructed 
along the dock line, entirely closing the 
area to be filled, before any deposit 
whatever may be made, a substantial 
and tight bulkhead or retaining wall, 
extending not less than six feet above 
extreme low water in Lake Michigan, 
so constructed that it shall allow dredg- 
ing;to|a depth of twenty (20) feet against 
it, and shall be of sufficient mass to act 
as a retaining wall against a back fill- 
ing reaching to its top. 

2. That not more than two openings, 
one hundred feet in width each, shall 
be temporarily left in this retaining 
wall or bulkhead for the passage of 
craft transporting the material for fill- 
ing or deposit, which openings shall be 



closed upon notification by the Secre- 
tary of War. 

3. That the plans of such bulkhead 
or retaining wall shall be submitted to 
and receive the approval of the Secre- 
tary of War, and the structure be built 
in accordance with such approved de- 
signs. 

4. That the work so permitted to be 
done shall be subject to the supervision 
and approval of the Engineer Officer of 
the United States Army in charge of the 
locality; and 

Whereas, It is necessary to the suc- 
cessful prosecution of the said work and 
to secure safe and convenient access 
and egress to and from the grounds pro- 
posed to be filled and reclaimed, lying 
east of the Illinois Central Railroad, 
that an amicable arrangement and 
agreement be made by and between the 
City of Chicago and the Illinois Central 
Railroad Company; and 

Whereas, The Common Council of 
the City of Chicago and the Illinois 
Central Railroad Company entered into 
a contract, bearing date March 28, 1853, 
which was duly executed under their re- 
spective seals, by which, among other 
things, the City of Chicago, for valu- 
able considerations, covenanted and 
agreed that said railroad company 
might "enter upon and use in perpetu- 
ity for its said line of road, and for 
works necessary to protect the same 
from the lake, a width of three hundred 
feet from the southern boundary of 
said public ground, near Twelfth street, 
to the northern line of Randolph street," 
only a part of which has been occupied 
by said company; and it is claimed by 
said railroad company that the City 
of Chicago is bound in good faith to 
carry out said covenant by giving the 
license mentioned in the decree of the 
cour in the suit above referred to, which 
shall authorize said company to occupy 
the whole of said 300 foot strip; and 

Whereas, The parties to said con- 
tract will each be better accommodated 
by an arrangement permitting the said

railroad company to appropriate and 
occupy . for railroad purposes certain 
parcels of ground at each end of the 
said three hundred foot strip, instead 
of the full width of said strip through- 
out the entire length thereof; and 

Whereas, It is understood that the 
Illinois Central Eailroad Company is 
willing, for the considerations and on 
the terms and conditions hereinafter 
set forth, to comply with the provisions 
of this ordinance, so far as they relate 
to any matters or things required of, or

Whereas, Great thought and attention 
have been given in the last few years in this

gers in the City of Chicago, which has re- 
sulted in the building of manv horse car, 
trolley, cable and elevated lines, and by 



which intramural transportation has been 
greatly benefited; and, 

Whereas, All of these lines have been 
projected and built by corporations for 
their pecuniary benefit; through the build- 
ing of which, on almost every street in the 
central portion of the city, and by reason 
of the rough, noisy and worn-out condi- 
tion of a large number of our pavements, 
communication from one part of the city to 
another, by nifeans of light vehicles, is 
made slow, difficult and very dangerous to 
vehicles and the bodies and lives of those 
riding and driving therein ; and 

Whereas, The largest amount of vehic- 
ular traffiic is from the West to the South 
Side and return; and, 

Whereas, It is the duty of this Council 
to provide a safe method of travel for the 
large body of the citizens who, in the na- 
ture of things, cannot make an organized 
effort to help themselves; therefore, be it 

Resolved, That a committee of six from 
this Council be appointed by His Honor, 
the Mayor, to investigate this subject,and 
to report upon the advisability of building 
an elevated driveway or viaduct, extending 
from Halsted street to Michigan avenue, 
and a method of raising funds to pay for 
the same. 

Resolved, further, That this committee 
shall be empowered to call upon the Com- 
missioner of Public Works and the City 
Engineer, the Special Assessment Bureau, 
or any other department, for assistance in 
making plans and estimates, or any needed 
information, to forward the proceedings 
contemplated by this resolution.

The following is the ordinance as passed: 

Whereas, It was decided and ad. 
judged in and by the final decree of the 
Circuit Court of the United States for 
the Northern District of Illinois, en- 
tered September 24, 1888, in the original 
suit of The People of the State of Illi- 
nois, upon the relation of the Attorney 
General of said State, complainants, 
against the Illinois Central Railroad 
Company and the City of Chicago, de- 
fendants, and the cross suit of the City 
of Chicago, complainant, against the 
Illinois Central Eailroad Company and 
The People of the State of Illinois, de- 
fendants—which decree was afterwards, 
in this respect, affirmed on appeal by 
the Supreme Court of the United States, 
—that (saving the rights of the Illinois 
Central Railroad Company defined in 
the said decree) the fee of all the public 
grounds in the City of Chicago lying 
east of Michigan avenue and between 
the north line of Randolph street ex- 
tended to Lake Michigan and the north 
line of Block twenty- three, extended to 
the lake, in Fractional Section Fifteen 
Addition to Chicago, including the 
grounds upon which rest the tracks and 
breakwater constructed by the Illinois 
Central Railroad Company, is in the 
City of Chicago in trust for public use; 
and that the City of Chicago, as riparian 
owner of said grounds on the east or 
Lake Front of said city, between the 
north line of Randolph street and the 
north line of said Block twenty-three, 
each of said lines being produced to 
Lake Michigan, and in virtue of au- 
thority to that end conferred by its 
charter, has, among other powers, the 
power to establish, construct, erect and 
keep in repair on said Lake Front east 
of said premises, in such manner as 
may be consistent with law, public 
landing places, wharves, docks and 
levees, subject, however, in the execu- 
tion of this power, to the authority of 
the State by legislation to prescribe the 
lines beyond which piers, docks, wharves 
and other structures other than those 
erected by the General Government, 
may not be extended into the waters

[1895. 



of the harbor that are navigable in 
fact, and to such supervision and con- 
trol as the United States may rightfully 
exercise in and over said harbor; and 

Whereas, The public interests im- 
peratively require that the power thus 
vested in the City of Chicago should now 
be exercised, and permission has been 
obtained from the Secretary of War, 
according to the form of the statute of 
the United States in such case made 
and provided, to fill in a portion of the 
outer harbor at Chicago, as far out as 
the harbor line established by the Secre- 
tary of War September 28, 1890, upon the 
following conditions: 

1. That there shall be constructed 
along the dock line, entirely closing the 
area to be filled, before any deposit 
whatever may be made, a substantial 
and tight bulkhead or retaining wall, 
extending not less than six feet above 
extreme low water in Lake Michigan, 
so constructed that it shall allow dredg- 
ing to a depth of twenty (20) feet against 
it, and shall be of sufficient mass to act 
as a retaining wall against a back fill- 
ing reaching to its top. 

2. That not more than two openings, 
one hundred feet in width each, shall 
be temporarily left in this retaining 
wall or bulkhead for the passage of 
craft transporting the material for fill- 
ing or deposit, which openings shall he 
closed upon notification by the Secre- 
tary of War. 

3. That the plans of such bulkhead 
or retaining wall shall be submitted to 
and receive the approval of the Secre- 
tary of War, and the structure be built 
in accordance with such approved de- 
signs. 

4. That the work so permitted to be 
done shall be subject to the supervision 
and approval of the Engineer Officer of 
the United States Army in charge of the 
locality; and 

Whereas, It is necessary to the suc- 
cessful prosecution of the said work and 
to secure safe and convenient access 
and egress to and from the grounds pro 



posed to be filled and reclaimed, lying 
east of the Illinois Central Railroad, 
that an amicable arrangement and 
agreement be made by and between the 
City of Chicago and the Illinois Central 
Railroad Company; and 

Whereas, The Common Council of 
the City of Chicago and the Illinois 
Central Railroad Company entered into 
a contract, bearing date March 28, 1853, 
which was duly executed under their re- 
spective seals, by which, among other 
things, the City of Chicago, for valu- 
able considerations, covenanted and 
agreed that said railroad company 
might "enter upon and use in perpetu- 
ity for its said line of road, and for 
works necessary to protect the same 
from the lake, a width of three hundred 
feet from the southern boundary of 
said public ground, near Twelfth street, 
to the northern line of Randolph street," 
only a part of which has been occupied 
by said company; and it is claimed by 
said railroad company that the City 
of Chicago is bound in good faith to 
carry out said covenant by giving the 
license mentioned in the decree of the 
court in the suit above referred to, which 
shall authorize said company to occupy 
the whole of said 300 foot strip; and 

Whereas, The parties to said con- 
tract will each be better accommodated 
by an arrangement permitting the said 
railroad company to appropriate and 
occupy for railroad purposes certain 
parcels of ground at each end of the 
said three hundred foot strip, instead 
of the full width of said strip through- 
out the entire length thereof; and 

Whereas, It is understood that the 
Illinois Central Railroad Company is 
willing, for the considerations and on 
the terms and conditions hereinafter 
set forth, to comply with the provisions 
of this ordinance, so far as they relate 
to any matters or things required of, or 
to be undertaken, done or performed by 
said company; therefore 

Be it Ordained by the City Council of the 
City of Chicago:

utes (31° 30') with a line parallel to 
Michigan avenue, nine hundred and 
three (903) feet, to a point twelve hun- 
dred and thirty (1230) feet east of the 
west line of Michigan avenue; thence 
on a six degree (6°) curve to the right 
to its intersection with the north line 
of .Randolph street extended. The said 
walls shall be raised to an elevation of 
twenty-two feet above Chicago city 
datum, and shall be of sufficient 
strength and solidity to serve perma- 
nently the purpose for which they are 
to be erected. 

3. The said railroad company shall

of said wall down to the grade of Mich- 
igan avenue. To facilitate the delivery 
of such material, the said company shall 
have the right to lay temporary railroad 
tracks in said park, which shall be re- 
moved as soon as the delivery is com- 
pleted.

two filled projections into the lake be- 
yond the east line of its right of way 
at the foot of Peck court and Harrison 
street, containing altogether about thir- 
ty-four-one-hundredths (34-100) of an 
acre; and also any land there may be 
east or outside of that part of its right 
of way, two hundred feet in width, 
which lies south of a line drawn across 
the said right of way seventy feet north 
of the north line of Adams street pro- 
duced easterly and parallel thereto, and 
north of a line drawn across the said 
right of way seventy-four (74) feet north

poses, free from all restrictions, except 
that no building or other structure shall 
be erected upon that portion of its right 
of way exceeding in height the top of 
the wall maintained along the west 
side thereof, or, when erected at street 
crossings, the floor of the viaduct or 
footway there constructed, except by 
consent of the municipal authorities. 
But nothing in this section contained

[1895. 



sioner of Public Works to issue a permit to 
the owners of certain lots along the south 
side of Eighty- sixth street to connect tem- 
porarily with the main sewer in Vincennes 
avenue. This proposed connection would 
toe outside of the proper sewerage district 
for these property owners, and when pro- 
ceedings are instituted and an assessment 
is levied for the construction of a sewer in 
such district, the way would be open for 
these property owners to object to the 
assessment of their property on the ground 
that they already had sufficient connection. 
I do not mean to say that these property 
owners would interpose such objections in 
a future assessment proceeding, but the 
city ought to exercise proper precautions 
in the premises and not afford opportunity 
for any of them to do so. 1 am advised 
that such objections have been made in 
similar cases in the County Court and that 
they have been sustained by the court. As 
it is not proposed, nor is it desirable, that 
the connection contemplated by this order 
shall be permanent, the order, if passed, 
ought to contain some suitable provisions 
under which the connection can be termin- 
ated by the Department of Public Works 
whenever desirable.and under which inter- 
ested property owners can be prevented 
from setting up the existence of the con- 
nection to defeat a proper assessment for a 
sewer in their appropriate sewerage dis- 
trict. With such suitable provisions incor- 
porated, I do not now see that the order 
would be objectionable. 

Very respectfully yours, 
Geo. B. Swift, 
Mayor. 

Aid. O'Neill moved to reconsider the 
vote by which the ordinance referred to in 
the veto message of His Honor, the Mayor, 
was passed. 

The motion prevailed. 

Aid. O'Neill moved that the order be re- 
ferred to the Committee on Streets and Al- 
leys, S. D.

penses of this office at intervals of three 
months, 1 have the honor to submit the 



October 28,] 



1177 



[1895. 



following report of moneys expended in 
the City Attorney's office, outside of the 
regular pay-roll, for which vouchers have 
been issued, from July 1, 1895, up to Oc- 
tober 1, 1895: 



Court costs $ 214 00

Physicians' certificates 15 00 

Expert medical testimony 38175 



Total $2,442 59 



*Under this item is included stationery bills, 
printing of abstracts and briefs, expense of the 
investigation of petitions referred to this depart- 
ment by your Honorable Body, and expenses in- 
cident to the investigating and collecting of 
evidence, preparation for trial and trial expense^ 
of cases and miscellaneous office expenses. 

I am attempting to reduce the expense of 
this office as much as is consistent with the 
proper management of the same. I believe 
that the various subordinates in the office 
are impressed with the fact that the city is 
financially embarrassed and that the work 
being done by them is being as cheaply 
done as possible. 

The business of the office is increasing 
rapidly, and new cases are being brought 
at the rate of thirty- five a month. The 
trial attorney of the office has been en- 
gaged in court almost continually since the 
opening of the courts, about the 15th of 
September, and many cases have been dis- 
posed of. 

Thanking your committee for the uni- 
form courtesy that has been shown me, I 
remain, 

Very respectfully, 

Eoy O. West, 
City Attorney. 

By N. A. Wright.

Placed on file.

Washington Hesing, Postmaster of Chi- 
cago: 

Post Office. ) 
Chicago, Oct. 30, 1895. J 

H on. Geo. B. Swift, Mayor, Chicago, III. : 
Dear Sir — At my request, fully fif- 
teen months ago, a committee was ap- 
pointed 3 of which Alderman Hepburn 
was Chairman, to rename and renumber 
the streets of Chicago. That committee 
made its report, which was quite satis- 
factory. The understanding at that time 



November 7,] 



1196 



[1895. 



was that that should end the matter, 
and we have accordingly arranged our 
"scheme" of city distribution. You can 
readily see that if at each session of the 
Council any Alderman has the right to 
request the changing of a street name, 
we never will get through, and our 
* 'scheme" never will be perfect. This 
affects not only the post-office, but the 
city; it affects every citizen; it decidedly 
impairs the utility of the directory. I 
have noticed of late that there have been 
occasional changes, made by order of 
the Council, and these changes always 
go through with a whoop and a hurrah, 
without a dissenting voice. 

May I ask you to do what you can to 
stop such further changing of street 
names, for if this continues we never 
will be able to get a perfect system of 
distribution, which I am very anxious 
should be gotten. 

Yours, 

Washington Hesing. 

Postmaster. 

Which was 

Referred to the Committee on Nomen- 
clature.

The Commissioner of Health submitted 
the following communication: 

Department of Health, ) 
Chicago, Nov. 4, 1895. S 

To the Honorable Mayor and City Coun- 
cil of the City of Chicago : 

Gentlemen— In accordance with the 
resolution recently passed by your Honor- 
able Body, directing the Commissioner of 
Health to have an inspection made of the 
sanitary condition of the County building, 
I beg to hand you herewith the report of 
our Chief Inspector, concerning the condi- 
tion of the County building, in compliance 
with said resolution. 

Wm. R. Kerr, 
Commissioner of Health. 
(Enclosure. ) 

Chicago, Oct. 30, 1895. 

Wm. R. Kerr, Esq., Commissioner of 
Health: 

Dear Sir — In compliance with your 
order of October 25th, I have the honor 
to make the following report of the san- 
itary condition of the County building 
so far as pertains to the drainage, plumb- 
ing and ventilation of said building. 

An examination of the improvements 
effected shows that the suggestions made 
by this department after the inspection 
of April 19, 1894, have been fully and 
faithfully carried out, with the result of 
placing the building in good sanitary 
condition at the date of this report. 

The improvements effected are in 
keeping with the city ordinances relat- 
ing to plumbing, drainage and ventila- 
tion, the closets and other fixtures used 



in the building being of superior quality 
and specially adapted for the various 
uses required of them. The ventilation 
system of the building is up to every re- 
quirement, with some minor exception^, 
such as the absence of local vents in 
toilet rooms 420-424, 320-328, and ladies' 
toilet room of Recorder's office, these 
being locally vented by transoms leading 
to the separate halls or passageways 
leading to such toilet rooms. But as the 
general ventilation of halls and corridors 
is exceptionally good, its absence in these 
rooms is of minor importance. I would, 
however, call attention to the dangerous 
condition of the gas pipes in attic, these 
pipes being insecurely supported and 
liable to fall, breaking their connections 
and filling attic and space under roof 
with a dangerous explosive. The rub- 
bish in attic should be removed and the 
space thoroughly cleaned. The same 
should be done in the cellar. 

In toilet rooms where there are two 
local vent openings, one should be closed 
permanently. This will add to the effect- 
iveness of the ventilation where the space 
ventilated is of limited size, as is the case 
in these rooms. Doors to fresh air ducts 
in cellar should be kept closed, prevent- 
ing the admission of cellar or contami- 
nated air to air ducts, and a disinfectant 
used where urinals are used. 

I would also call attention to the* un- 
sightly and filthy condition of the court 
between buildings facing Washington 
street, rubbish of all kinds being scat- 
tered about, horse feed, boxes, etc., 
while horses are fed and kept here the 
greater part of the day, the droppings 
and urine saturating the wooden blocks 
of which the court is paved. The win- 
dows facing this, if open, afford ingress 
to the barnyard smell pervading in the 
court. Its condition is unhealthy, and 
but a poor background for the Drake 
fountain. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Andrew Young, 
Chief Insjjector. 

Which was ordered placed on file.

Chicago, Nov. 11, 1895. S 

To the City Council: 

Gentlemen— I desire to call your at-

ra es of fare to be charged by cabmen and 
owners and drivers of other vehicles is, 



November 11,] 1 

since the annexation ordinances were 
passed, in need of amendment. 

I desire further to call your attention to 
the fact that a large part of the revenue 
that should he collected for licenses from 
peddlers, expressmen, single and double 
teams, etc., is lost to the city because of 
the very inadequate system now in vogue 
relative to detecting those t who do not pay. 

May 1 suggest that this communication 
be referred to a suitable committee of the 
City Council, before whom representatives 
of the different departments may appear,

to your Honorable Body a suitable ordi- 
nance for amending those now in force.
